Promise History

1.11.11 - “[C]ompleting the Niagara GO Expansion”

In progress

The Niagara GO expansion continues to be in its planning stages. The promise therefore remains in progress.

“Niagara will see 11 GO trains daily to and from Niagara. That is the conclusion from an update from Metrolinx, the agency which oversees public transportation in the Greater Toronto and Golden Horseshoe area. Metrolinx recently provided Niagara with an update on the its initial business case for expanded GO service in Niagara. The update recommends a service pattern that is to include six outbound trains from Niagara Falls to Union Station and five trains inbound from Union Station to Niagara Falls seven days a week. The report said the schedule will reduce travel time from Toronto to Niagara Falls 15 minutes to 45 minutes over current train-bus services.”

In progress

“Last week Metrolinx released an update on it’s Niagara Falls rail service extension which has the goal of implementing a two-way all-day service to Niagara Falls on the Lakeshore West corridor. […] So far, Niagara Falls and St. Catharines GO stations are ready for operation on the Lakeshore West line while Confederation is currently under construction. Grimsby has been earmarked for future expansion.”
